INTRO / VERSE

G						Em	D
Here we come to a turning of the season

G						Em	D
Witness to the arc towards the sun

G						Em	D
A neighbor's blessed burden, within reason

G					    	Em	D	C
Becomes a burden borne of all in one,      and nobody, nobody knows




CHORUS

C			   G
Let the yoke fall from our shoulders

C			   	   Em
Don't carry it all, don't carry it all

C			   G
We are all our hands and holders

	     Bm			C
Beneath this bold and brilliant sun

		G				Em	D
This I swear to all




G						Em	D
A monument to build beneath the arbors

G						Em	D
Upon a cliff that towers towards the trees

G						Em	D
Let every vessel pitching hard to starboard

G					    	Em	D	C
Lay its head on summer's freckled knees    and nobody, nobody knows



C			   G
Let the yoke fall from our shoulders

C			   	   Em
Don't carry it all, don't carry it all

C			   G
We are all our hands and holders

	     Bm			C
Beneath this bold and brilliant sun

		G				Em	D
This I swear to all,			        This I swear to all


G						Em	D


BRIDGE

Bm			      C
Bear a wreath of trillium and ivy

Bm			      Em
Lay it upon the body of a     boy

Bm			      C
Lazy will the love come from its hiding

Am			      	     D
To return this quiet searcher to the soil




G							Em	D
So raise a glass to turnings of the season

G							Em	D
And watch it as it arcs towards the sun

G							Em	D
And you must bear your neighbors' burden within reason

G					    		Em	D	C
And your labors will be borne when all is done,     and nobody, nobody knows




C			   G
Let the yoke fall from our shoulders

C			   	   Em
Don't carry it all, don't carry it all

C			   G
We are all our hands and holders

	     Bm			C
Beneath this bold and brilliant sun

		G				Em	D
This I swear to all,			        This I swear to all


G						Em	D 
This I swear to all.   ("To all, to all, to all", etc, right on out.)
